I don't understand how you could keep your system updated without a repository.
  1. How did you install the system?
  2. Is your system registered with RedHat?
  3. Please run this command and copy/paste the output: yum repolist[
For comparison, on a system like:
OS, ker|rel, machine: Linux, 2.6.32-358.23.2.el6.centos.plus.x86_64, x86_64
Distribution        : CentOS 6.4 (Final)

I get output that includes lines like:
repo id            repo name                                              status
base               CentOS-6 - Base                                         6696
centosplus         CentOS-6 - Plus                                           74
contrib            CentOS-6 - Contrib                                         0
epel               Extra Packages for Enterprise Linux 6 - x86_64         12230
extras             CentOS-6 - Extras                                         63

Best wishes ... cheers, drl

I have installed it on ESX machine as VM client and my system is not registered with RHN network.

PHP Code:
[root@esx-mind-~]# yum repolist
Loaded pluginsproduct-idsecuritysubscription-manager
This system is not registered to Red Hat Subscription Management
You can use subscription-manager to register.

It looked like back in 2012 in thread https://www.unix.com/linux/206565-sha...#post302730053 you did have a subscription, and you knew how to use yum.

I think your options now are:
  1. Install packages from the installation media, keeping in mind that they may be old.
  2. Try to create a local repository, see 8.4.6. Creating a Yum Repository
  3. Use CentOS.
  4. Try to install CentOS repostories in your RHEL system, some guidance might be helpful from Installing CentOS packages on Red Hat Enterprise Linux - Michael Cutler's personal website -- but in the past few years CentOS was folded into RedHat, so I don't know whether this is still possible.
  5. Wait or search for other answers here or on the net.
For some more discussion along this line wait for other responses here, and/or see rhel6 - Do I need a RHEL subscription to install packages? - Server Fault

The most on-point comment that I found if you stay with an unregistered system is The wasted time would cost a lot more than the subscription!

Good luck ... cheers, drl

Compiling them by hand is not the answer either. You will be left with a spectacularly messed up system.

Yes definitely I know how to use yum, and I had installed fedora then and it was very easy to install packages using yum in fedora, but in Redhat it will ask for subscription

1. May be i'll try creating local repository and try to configure yum and then install the packages.
2. I need to use RHEL 6.4 only as I need to build and automation frame work for my testing environment for that RHEL 6.4 is mandatory.

Thanks for you kind help. I will try and update in the ticket.
